Writer Wanna Be's

Written by Joyce C. Lock


Continued from page 1
So, there are no guidelines thatrepparttar 'would be hopeful' can obtain ~ unlessrepparttar 126367 writer throws out their own style, to match someone else's, in hopes of being accepted into that group. And, that could even be a good thing, if only that group were a 'for real' publisher. But what really happens is, authors sell their soul to be accepted by a group of 'writer wanna be's'. As it is with many, one's dream of writing is not all that different fromrepparttar 126368 self-defeating teen-age dream of, one day, winningrepparttar 126369 Miss America pageant; only with more substance. If you are fixed on becoming famous byrepparttar 126370 world's methods, go right ahead and letrepparttar 126371 world keep kicking you in pants. As Christians, when we followrepparttar 126372 majority, we lose sight of why we are writing and end up inviting our own defeat. However, if you are inspired by Holy unction, you will write whether you ever become famous or not. And, know this; when God inspires you to write, there are souls waiting for that message. If you ever get a glimpse intorepparttar 126373 importance, significance, and magnitude of that, you will share your writings whether you ever get paid or not ... and you will stop welcoming criticism. Our accuser's name is Satan. Also, when God inspires a writing, it does not really belong to you. So, when 'represented to be' Christian (Christ-like) people holler about copyrights, I start to lose respect for them. It is one thing for another to claim and or make a profit off your works. It is another to threaten and sue when someone has paid such a compliment as to share your writing with others it might, also, minister to. The same goes for all forms of Christian ministry. For however many ways God opens doors,repparttar 126374 seed He gives can and should be multiplied again, and again. It is God's job to determine how many times one's seed gets multiplied. Our part is to be available, faithful, and obedient to share that which He blesses us with. And,repparttar 126375 more you share,repparttar 126376 more God gives you to share. Also,repparttar 126377 better you will get at it! Then, as it works in with God's timing and you are spiritually prepared for what comes next, God will open more doors ~ then more. If your calling leads inrepparttar 126378 direction of publishing, publishers will find you. For others, writing may have helped develop your confidence in being a better speaker. Whatever your path in life is to be, He who calls you will also do it. His yoke is easy and that takesrepparttar 126379 pressure off us. Let us forgetrepparttar 126380 'wanna be's' and put our focus on being a servant. God makes all things beautiful, when it is time.

~ * ~

But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.

2 Co. 9:6-8

~ Sharingrepparttar 126381 Joy ~

Share your seed and watch it grow.

Then, you'll knowrepparttar 126382 joy of giving.

Share yourself and your whole life.

Then, you'll knowrepparttar 126383 joy of living!

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
